The annual “warmth bombing” of downtown Grass Valley took place this morning, thanks to a group called Nevada County Random Acts of Warmth. Dozens of hats, scarves, gloves, and ear warmers were left for passers-by in the downtown area, according to the group’s Facebook page. The loose-knit group, so to speak, has been “warmth-bombing” Nevada County since 2015.

Our warmth bomb came in the form of PG&E turning on our power after 10 days. But- How strange that Comcast Xfinity can’t get more than one truck to troubleshoot downed lines . I saw a dozen PG&E trucks, and ATT trucks, but a company that made $10 Billion in 2020( that’s with a B) cant help in an emergency. During the outage you could not talk to someone in person from Xfinity. Just a recording. Then—-They (of course) moved their offices from Grass Valley to Marysville to better serve the community. Huh? We tried to listen to KNCO for news about when power would be restored, but the day of the storm they had a right wingding named Lars who was on for 4 hours trash talking our government while praising the last impeached loser. KVMR isnt any better, with Pascual giving us old news that everyone knows already (sorry but I get those PG&E texts just like you) . I’m giving up on any type of meaningful reporting during emergencies around Nevada County, It’s every man and woman for themselves.
